Linky Love & Blog Crushes at WhisperWood Cottage

Pin It

I made a virtual sticky note to remind myself to tell a lot of people "thank you." There has been a lot of linky love and blog crushes going around, and I wanted to pass it on!! So cozy up to the computer and let me tell you about the loveliest and linkiest of my linky loves...


I am so happy that so many people are inspired by my barn-style door project in the master bedroom. Nester is diggin' on the barn-style door, and I am diggin' on her oh-so-adorable-and-elegant nesting spoons. Melissa@The Inspired Room also likes the door, and her recent post about creative spaces for everyday things has inspired me to see new possibilities for organizing the closet behind it. Miss Layla@The Lettered Cottage included the door in her Houzz ideabook entitled "Tossed and Found." I might consider trading it for her ├╝ber-cozy reading roomCheri@Its So Very Cheri and Roeshel@The DIY Show-Off both did features of the entire master bedroom makeover. Keep your eye on those two! Their blogs are full of ideas!


Turns out that Ms. Sarah@A Beach Cottage has a blog crush on my sloped and beaded ceilings. Well, Ms. Sarah, I have a blog crush on all your white-washed finds and beach-inspired style! Kimba@A Soft Place to Land showed some holiday love for my 4 holiday hostess gifts with a junk twist way back in December. Doesn't her blog name make you feel at home? After linking up to fun blog parties, some WhisperWood Cottage projects have also been highlighted by Danielle@Transforming HomeTrash to Treasure DecoratingDonna@Funky Junk InteriorsCassity@Remodelaholics AnonymousMarian@Miss Mustard Seed, and Cheri@Its So Very Cheri.


Stan@The Elegant Thrifter, author of "The Find," posted about Ron's industrial gear lamps as a form of "mantiques." Donna@Funky Junk Interiors also posted two of them on her sidebar as her "Find of the Week". So proud of my hubby! You should see the lamps he is making for the upcoming Art + Architecture, JUNKMARKETStyle event!


The JunkFest girls surprised me with a whole post full of bloggy love when I was eliminated from the SYTYCD competition. We are junk soulmates! Stephanie@SYTYCD also made me smile with her kind words. She is the hostess with the mostest! :) I enjoyed the interview she did of me and the post she put together!


Hana@MomTogDiaries and Nita@ModVintageLife both bestowed me with Beautiful Blogger Awards. I'm honored! To top it all off, I've won recent prizes from Sue@Vintage Rescue Squad, Victoria@Whimsy by Victoria, and Marianne@Songbird...all within a 24-hour time span. Should have bought a lottery ticket that day! A while back, I won a giveaway from Layla@The Lettered Cottage, and have enjoyed using the items in my decor. I've also been informed that I will getting something special from Deb@Talking Trash for simply suggesting a name for baby Bella's recent birthday celebration. What did I suggest? CinderBella's Ball! :)

Whew! That's a whole of thanking! I hope it expresses the gratitude I have for each of you. And just because you aren't mentioned doesn't mean I don't have a blog crush on you, too! {wink! wink! eye lashes fluttering} See ya' later, hot stuff!
